| ||Tasted by Redhawk-Jayhawk on 10/16/2011 & rated 89 points: A very nice smoky Pinot. Crisp. Had with steak and lobster and seemed to go well with both. (1868 views)|
| ||Tasted by winosis3 on 12/22/2010 & rated 89 points: Light color not too complex, would go better with food than just sipping (2387 views)|
| ||Tasted by tonybona on 11/13/2010 & rated 86 points: very tight when opened. Allowed some air - aromas of raspberry, mineral and spice. Crisp acidity with muted fruit flavors - a fairly simple wine. (2350 views)|
| ||Tasted by cartime on 10/18/2010 & rated 90 points: Ripe, earthy black cherry and raspberry nose with a hint of spice. Minerally palate with sour red cherries and sweet spices. Nice amount of fruit on the attack, but things hollow out a bit on the midpalate. Medium length smooth finish. Would buy again. (2059 views)|

| ||Tasted by toddmk on 7/5/2010 & rated 89 points: A very good Pinot with nice cherry flavors. Well balanced and would buy again around the $20 price point. (1549 views)|
| ||Tasted by kh32174 on 4/10/2010 & rated 92 points: Incredible fruity nose, strawberry, raspberry, cherry with a hint of mineral, the fruit disappears quickly and you are left with the minerals. Good texture and a nice body for a PN. Soft tannins, mild tarts fruits with a mild mineral after taste.... a smooth wine, very nice. I would buy this for the the $27 pirce but would rather see it closer to $20. (1346 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
